About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, September 28, 2021.

This Advanced Beginning Tennis Class (USTA/NTRP 2.0-2.5) is designed for adults 18 & up who have had some instruction, feel comfortable “demonstrating” the fundamentals of Serve, Forehand, Backhand, Volley’s and Overhead, but lack the ability to change grips quickly, rally, and hit on the run. Players will really enjoy more challenging opportunities to rally, learn more advanced agility and footwork, become more comfortable with stoke preparation, stroke choice, basic ball placement and positioning for singles and doubles. Drills are introduced in this class and in general, this level of play can participate, FREE of Charge during the session duration, in our Sunday 2.0-2.5 Mixer that generally runs from 4:45-6:45pm (Please check Covid-19 availability, as Mixers may not be available).Per Covid-19 guidelines at PTC, please make sure you bring your own water bottle (water is not provided at PTC), and a mask must always be worn during play indoors. Covid-19 protocols change often, please check our website for updates: https://www.portland.gov/parks/covid-19-updates.For future reference, participation in any of our 3.0 & above Mixers will require an NTRP or PTC Rating in order to register, so either provide your NTRP Rating by emailing PTC Coordinator Bret Bowers at bret.bowers@portlandoregon.gov or if you DO NOT have an NTRP Rating, please register online on Portland Tennis Bookings for one of our PTC Rating Sessions.Note: To determine level advancement in the Adult Development process, please consult with your Certified Professional Instructor as to when you are ready to advance or if this level of play is the right fit.Helpful Links: USTA/NTRP link to understanding playing level and ratings https://assets.usta.com/assets/639/15/National%20tennis%20Rating%20Program.pdfhttps://www.usta.com/content/dam/usta/pdfs/NTRP%20General%20Characteristics.pdfhttps://www.usta.com/content/dam/usta/pdfs/10013_experience_player_ntrp_guidelines.pdf
